Young scholars program

Holden Turney, a senior at Trinity High School, was one of four high school students selected to participate in the Premature & Sick Infant — Young Scholars Program this summer.

The purpose of the program, according to a news release from the school, is to encourage high school students “to pursue careers involved in the care of premature and sick infants, and to educate them in the roles of associated medical professionals, including neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, neonatal intensive care nurses, pediatricians and developmental and speech therapists.”

The students attended the program  at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Norton Suburban Hospital.
